If you spend any appreciable amount of time browsing Facebook or Twitter on a web browser, you’re no doubt excited about the possibilities of the new kid in town, RockMelt. But why abandon Safari when you can bring the social to the browser installed with every Mac?
It was too awesome a rumor to have been true. After a week of whispered rumors, punditry and the intermittent sound of sighs and facepalms ringing out across the land, it appears that the dream of a Facebook buyout by Apple has been dashed upon the rocks of reality. According to Mashable, who broke the story last week, further information that debunked speculation that Mark Zuckerberg was ready to hand over Facebook's reigns for a whole lotta cold hard cash is nothing but hogwash.

Skype released a new version of their desktop client for Windows today. Skype 5.0 adds multiple social networking features, including the ability to integrate with Facebook, group video calling, SMS to Facebook friends, and a completely revamped user interface.

There's something like 500 million Facebook users around the world, which means that at any given second someone is probably receiving a notification message in their inbox. And if this is correct, that means that the servers at Gmail, MobileMe, and University email accounts are flooded with notifications that announce the arrival of a new comment on a photo, video, or hilarious post that you published on a friend's page.
Simply put, those emails can be really annoying. And we're sick of them flooding our inboxes and distracting us from getting any work done around here. Chances are, you might be a little annoyed, too, and that's okay because we're here to tell you how to rid of these notifications, how to receive only the ones you really care about, and how to organize them in your inbox so that you can tackle them later.
If you ventured out to see The Social Network in recent days you've been subjected to Trent Reznor's musical genius, as the movie's soundtrack was conceived and recorded by Reznor and partner in crime, Attius Ross. If the soundtrack did nothing for you, that's OK: you don't have to enjoy Reznor's music to respect the man himself. Well spoken, introspective and dangerously intelligent, the former Nine Inch Nails frontman's candor is legendary. In a recent interview, Reznor frankly declared his feelings surrounding social networking, and surprisingly, Steve Jobs.

Maybe you're not aware of this, but there's a good chance you're friends can see your phone number on Facebook. We'll show you how to hide this vital information.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his team of developers have just announced several more new features for the massive social networking site, but maybe you're like us and had a problem deciphering anything from the constant blurping during Facebook's live streaming presentation. Either way, it's always good to go back and do a bit of a recap, and that's why we're here. Because whether you're on a PC or a Mac, there's probably someone in the room with trolling through Facebook profiles right this second.
Facebook is a really undergoing some structural changes lately. First, they tried their hand at knocking FourSquare out of the race with Places, and now the site has completely overhauled its Photos feature with a faster UI, batch tagging and high resolution photo uploading.
